Pimple on penis? - September 2nd 2011, 05:04 AM

Hey guys.

I am 99% sure that this isn't anything, but I thought I'd check with yall just to be safe.

I have a bump near the base of my penis (shaft I guess?) that is somewhat sore to the touch, and appears to have puss. I'm guessing it's just the everyday pimple (or...ingrown hair?) and I assume this is normal, right? Just checking. And in case anyone is wondering, no I am not sexually active in ANY form, so it would not be an STD or anything.

Most likely just an ingrown hair, I've had them down there before. Try not to touch it or iritate it and it should go away in a few days. If it gets worse after a week or so, you should consider seeing a doctor though.


Now that we're here, it's so far away
All the struggle we thought was in vain
An' all the mistakes one life contained
They all finally start to go away

How can I be lost?
If I've got nowhere to go?

Okay. Sounds good. Yeah I will keep an eye on it and stuff. On a slightly different topic, there's an over-the-counter ointment that I need to buy at some point for an area of irritated skin down there (I got all sweaty a lonnngg time back from a PE final and I still have a small irritated little bump that does get itchy and stuff from time to time) but can't come up with an excuse to get out of the house and buy it at the drug store.

I had something just like that too.
Gave it a couple of days and it was gone.

I'm not a guy, but I hope you don't mind me answering

Like others have said, it sounds like an ingrown hair or something. Us girls get them too Nothing to worry about, unless it doesn't go away in a few days, or it gets bigger or sorer or starts oozing blood. Then you should see a doctor.

Why do you need an excuse? Tell them that you're going to the drugstore.

Or if you're embarrassed (which I suppose is probably the problem,) then just say you're going for a walk, or to meet friends. Or, if it's near enough to your school, go there before/after school and tell your parents you're going to school early/staying late to do extra work or something

lol I HATE lying to them, but I'd rather not have to tell them that I'm buying a treatment for a bump that I meant to take care of a long time ago. I'm usually a pretty open person, but this one is just AWKWARRRDDDD.

Sure, it's awkward. But, I'm sure your parents will understand if you tell them the truth. They might assume your sexually active, but just explain that your not.

Re: Pimple on penis? - September 3rd 2011, 06:31 AM

lol I'm essentially never anyplace except school or home, so there's essentially no opportunity for me to BE sexually active.

I guess the most awkward part is that I haven't dealt with it yet when it's bothered me off and on for quite a while (eventually it mostly stopped being a nuisance after a while, so I kinda forgot about it) but it sometimes does get terribly itchy when I sweat and all I just don't want them to think I'm irresponsible or whatever for not taking care of this sooner.
